NEW PRODUCT HIGHLIGHTS
$300 for a 2 Hour Postpartum Wellness Prep-Course + Personalized Relationship Wellness E-book
This course is for partners who are expecting a baby and wanting to plan for mental and relational wellness in advance. We will spend time learning about the neurobiological changes that occur during pregnancy (for both mom and dad), review communication styles, conflict resolution, individual triggers and coping skills, and discuss a plan for practical needs that will arise in the postpartum season that will have a direct impact on your mental health. After the session, I will send you a personalized ebook that summarizes our time together and presents a communication plan specific to your relationship needs and individual personality types.
$350 for 2 Hour Postpartum Booster Course + Personalized Relationship E-book
This course is for partners who are in the midst of the postpartum season and are having trouble connecting with one another while adjusting to the demands of parenthood. We will assess barriers to intimacy, discuss differences in personality, and create a plan for managing conflict and obstacles constructively during this time. During this course we will explore postpartum physical intimacy, baby-proof communication, individual triggers and coping skills. We will also come up with a do-able plan for each partner to experience autonomy and wellness during this season. After the session, you will receive a personalized ebook that summarizes our time together and presents a communication plan specific to your relationship needs and individual personality types.
$150/month for personal weekly mental wellness coaching through text and e-mail exchange
Sometimes it’s easier to type out your thoughts, struggles, and feelings during that middle of the night feeding. I want to overcome obstacles and provide a method through which I can engage personally with individuals who are looking for support and coaching so he or she can thrive emotionally during the postpartum season. This is not an appropriate service for individuals who have been diagnosed with a PMAD and who are not in treatment, it is a supplemental service that is solution-focused and will aim to overcome problems through solutions presented in email format. This client can expect to receive one to two emails a week and live text messaging as needed during the day. When it comes to problems involving lactation, sleep, medical issues, supplements and nutrition, I will refer you to a specialist I trust in your local area.

Home-based and Virtual Counseling Services
Getting out of the house as a new parent is hard enough. For parents struggling with mood and anxiety disorders, the stress of leaving is often compounded. Let me come to you and provide counseling services. No need to shower, clean, or put on a show. Let me come sit with you in the messy season and help you discover your beauty and resilience that can often go unseen amidst the growing pains.
If desired, during my time with you, I will work with you to make subtle changes around your home that may expand your capacity to enjoy life and embrace the beauty of this season in new ways. Sometimes it just takes creative problem solving, nursery additions, adjusting some furniture, opening up spaces, and bringing in more light to enhance the energy of a home.
I am also happy to meet you at a local park to walk, or at a coffee shop. Sometimes getting out of the house and breathing some fresh air can be therapeutic in and of itself.
Office-based Counseling Services
Fresh air and other adults can bring all sorts of refreshment to the weary mama and daddy soul. Let me know if coming to me is a better fit for your needs at this time, and I will be at the office to offer a listening ear. **Please note that all first sessions occur in the office so that we can get to know one another.**
Babies are welcome to join for the first few sessions, though our work together may be compromised by the presence of toddlers or older children. I ask that after our second session you work to attain childcare during our sessions.
Individual or Couple Postpartum Planning Consultation
Similar to how we plan a wedding while forgetting to focus on the marriage, we often move through pregnancy with a strong focus on the birth and a lack of regard for the postpartum period. Let me help you close gaps in advance, come up with a plan that honors this beautiful life transition and creates margin for individual and relational needs that may arise during the postpartum period. Postpartum planning is most efficient with both partners present.
Postpartum Wellness Course
Many parents attend birthing classes, but few arm themselves for the challenges that may arise postpartum. The relational dynamics and often unforeseen feelings that can surface during this delicate time deserve attention and preparation. Let me help you live life to the fullest during this season by offering education and practical tools to equip you to not just survive, but to thrive during this special time.
“Ashley is very kind and insightful. She takes the time to get to know you and to understand what you are going through. It seems she really cares about the people she helps and she always takes the time to pray with me. I am really glad that I was paired with her and really appreciate all that she has done to help me. I couldn’t ask for a better counselor!”
“Ashley is an extremely empathetic, insightful and sensitive counselor who is able to readily see the underlying emotions of an issue and addresses the issues with respect and kindness. During my sessions with Ashley I got the very deep sense that she genuinely cared about my well being and the situations that I was going through. Ashley made me feel like I had someone in my corner rooting for me and that felt amazing. I would recommend Ashley to anyone who is looking for a faith based counselor.”
“I felt secure sharing my struggles with Ashley which was invaluable to me. She is a sensitive, compassionate, and skillful counselor who I’d recommend to anybody.”
“She is amazing! The best counselor I have worked with!!”
“When I started this journey I was frankly afraid and uncertain if I would make any progress. I honestly don’t know how I could have worked through some of these things without Ashley, and where I would have been had I not pursued virtual sessions.”
